and a new bathroom scale!!!

Thursday, May 08, 2014

Early blog this morning. No walk today, my feet have been killing me so I decided to take a break today.
Yesterday after my walk, we got some work done.
Got the dishwasher taken out, it wasnt draining properly and the standing water was a health hazard, not to mention, stinky.
I dont miss it, I never used it.

So, now I get to replace it with a cabinet or some much needed drawer space.
Got the hot water heated checked and yes indeed, it was set to the lowest energy saving setting. Well, I am sorry, but I have to have some hot water. So we turned it up about 30 degrees. And that was part of the problem.
We have good water pressure in the sinks now, but not the showers so much, I believe its the shower heads, so today I am going to buy a cheap, one setting only shower head and see if the water pressure increases.

Didnt get the outdoor cooling unit wired up, but we did get a window ac to do for now.
Tore one small section of the carpet back to see that the kitchen flooring continued on thru and began the process of pulling up carpet. Only to discover about 2 foot in, that it did not go all the way thru.
So, back down went the carpet.
As much hard work as I know its going to be, now I will get to put down the floating hardwood laminate that I wanted to begin with, and will continue it down the hall to the bedroom!!!
Yeah, for Victory!!
Might be next spring before we do this, but it will be done the way I wanted.
So, we did accomplish a little.
Many more jobs to do, but its all good, the sun is here and gives me incentive to get outside in the early mornings. I need some items for the place, a microwave and a microwave cart. Some storage to serve as a pantry.
I am still waiting to see if my morning glories are going to bloom soon.
Hoping to have a nice healthy lunch with honey today. As this weekend is going to be a stressful one.
Whatever possessed me to schedule my dogs spay surgery the same weekend as Mothers Day???
So she has to be at the vet at 9 am tomorrow and pick up on Saturday.
Alot done, alot more to do and I just hope I can stay on the right track with my eating and walking. It was such good news about my vitamin d that I do not plan on ever letting it get that low again.
I am sure it will drop some when the sun is no longer a daily option, because the problem seemed to be in the absorption in my intestines.
Doc thinks its probably related to the removal of my gallbladder some years ago and that my body speeds up the process of digestion, not allowing the vitamins time to properly absorb.
You would think I would be super skinney if that is the case.
Well, I hope you all have a nice day and hope the sun is shining where you are.

    Wow, you have been busy! We don't use our dishwasher either but I'm reluctant to actually remove it because I keep saying we will get it fixed. emoticon

    Hope you are doing great

    Doctors don't know so much...that's why they call their work "practicing!"
    The body is also a very complicated machine!
    In my case, I was weak and tired, had diarrhea for months, and was gaining weight the whole time, as well as not absorbing vitamins. Fortunately, I found a nutritionist who prescribed various enzymes, and the problem has reversed!
    All we can do is keep searching for answers.
    Have fun fixing up the house!

    Sometimes I think doctors just say stuff to hear themselves sounding knowledgeable. You are right, if the vitamins don't stay long enough to do good, how come the fat stays long enough to do bad? Is bad faster than good?
